Our last night in civilization

August 18th, 2008 · 3 Comments

After a good nights sleep, we departed Barnaul for the ten hour drive to the Mongolian border. 5 hours later, while stopped to repair the bonnet which was being held down by gravity alone, we joined a convoy of four other Rally cars. It was fun to be driving with company. The bonnet problem was solved by a length of electrical wire tired over the bonnet and anchored to the two wing mirrors.

At 9:30pm we arrived at the border, where we setup camp in the field in front of the border which was occupied by cows and a wild dog. We all dined on pasta with some non-descript meat (probably horse).

It’s now 11:20pm, our sleeping bags await and tomorrow we hope to conquer the border.
